Tyson Barrie acknowledged on Wednesday that he wishes he could have done more for the Toronto Maple Leafs this past season.
Barrie and his teammates' season came to an end last Sunday after dropping Game five to the Columbus Blue Jackets in their best of five series. Barrie, who was acquired in a packaged deal that sent Nazem Kadri to the Colorado Avalanche last summer, recorded zero points in the series with a -2 rating. The 29-year-old's 39 regular season points was his second lowest total since his 2014-15 campaign and acknowledged that he didn't live up to Leafs fans' expectations over the past year. During his media availability to close out the season, Barrie held himself accountable with fans for not living up to expectations.
The Victoria native also described the past season as "disappointing" and said he "would have loved" to have helped the team more. Barrie is set to become an unrestricted free agent and has "no idea what the future holds."
With Cody Ceci also set to become free agent this summer, it will be interesting to see how the Leafs deal with their blue line moving forward. Where do you think Barrie will go in the offseason?
